An interesting overview on Alchoholism circa 1948. The first half details what happens when Alcohol gets into your body. It was interesting that this was really not presented in such a negative way. It was almost as if the narrator spoke of this as a common occurance. What's really fascinating is the end of the film, and the way they treated alcoholics (I think) in 1948. A comfy hospital stay, free food, and free drugs! "Many tests are done to make sure he's an alocoholic". Is it that hard? The "cured" alcoholic is shown the door after being treated, no doubt ready to hit the bottle again to get such first class treatment all over again.
